|In this paper we analyze the interaction of blind users with the iPad, the popular mobile tablet device that (thanks to its pre-installed VoiceOver screen reader) is also accessible to the blind. Specifically, we consider the ges-tures offered by VoiceOver to make the device usable by the blind users. Our analysis confirms that VoiceOver makes the iPad device basically accessible to blind users, but there are still some issues related to usability.|
